Worthy by Catherine Ryan Hyde

WorthyWorthy by Catherine Ryan Hyde
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a heart warming, heart breaking, true to life, sensitive story this is. Its written the way only Catherine Ryan Hyde can. She brings it all out to the fore. I just am such a fan of her work and read almost all of her books now.

Each day Aaron and his son who is only 4 years old walk to the diner to spend some time with Ginnie. Aaron has had a soft spot for Ginnie since...oh...forever, and finally he brazens it out and kisses her and asks her on a date.

But wow, on the way home walking back a tragedy happens. Really heart rending, this results in his young son Buddy being taken to live with his Grandparents.

Ginnie is heartbroken and grieving.

There are further developments 19 years later that bring them together.

Ginnie comes across to me a very sensitive woman, strong, but also worthy of knowing she can be strong when she needs to be.

Buddy is just a diamond. I loved how he was portrayed.

And the dog that binds them altogether?
Read it and see. I dare you to read it and not 'feel' something. I dare you to not shed a tear.

Beautifully written.

Its sad, there is no getting away from this and definitely you will need tissues.

My thanks go to Lake Union Publishing via Net Galley for my personal copy.

They might’ve been a family.

Virginia finally had the chance to explore a relationship with Aaron when he asked her on a date. She had been waiting, hoping that the widower and his young son, Buddy, would welcome her into their lives. But a terrible tragedy strikes on the night of their first kiss, crushing their hopes for a future together.

Nineteen years later, Virginia is engaged, though she has not forgotten Aaron or Buddy. When her dog goes missing and it comes to light that her fiancĂ© set him loose, a distraught Virginia breaks off the engagement and is alone once again. A shy young man has found the missing pet, and although he’s bonded with the animal, he answers his conscience and returns the dog. Before long, Virginia and the young man discover a connection from their pasts that will help them let go of painful memories and change their lives forever.
